The List sampler

Re-run existing chain samples

Name: List

Version: 1.0

Author(s): CosmoSIS Team



Parallel: embarrassing

This is perhaps the second simplest sampler - it simply takes all its samples from a list in a file and runs them all with the new pipeline.

This could probably be replaced with an importance sampler, and may be merged into it in future.


No special installation required; everything is packaged with CosmoSIS


These parameters can be set in the sampler's section in the ini parameter file.
If no default is specified then the parameter is required. A listing of "(empty)" means a blank string is the default.

Parameter Type Meaning Default
filename string cosmosis-format chain of input samples
save string if present the base-name to save the cosmology output from each sample (empty)
burn int, default=0 Number of samples to skip from the start of the input file
thin int, default=1 Process only every n'th samples from the input file
limits bool, default=False Respect the parameter prior limits in the values file; otherwise use all samples
